hyperbaric chamber


Today was the second day of class. So, we got to try out the hyperbaric chamber. If you don't know what they do well the short of is that they put you under pressure like if you were diving. We only went to a pressure of 44 feet under the water. Not that big of deal. Only problem I had was with my left ear. No matter what I did my ear didn't want to pop. Then it started to hurt so I told the dude running the chamber to stop. I think that was some where around 30 feet. Well now my ear is hurting me. Well not really hurting, just feels like someone is holding their hand over my ear. Not that much fun. If it doesn't get better this weekend I might get a lil freaked.
Tuesday we get to do out teabag dive. I can't wait for that! Breathing under water. Can't wait! Just my damn ear is buggin' me.

Now I don't know if I want to buy a wet suit or just rent one. I really want to buy one. But since I'm going out of town (back home) this weekend, I'll have to rent it another day. That's only $10 more, not that bad but I could also put that to the cost of the new wet suit it self. So, we'll see what I do.

You'll probably need one for your job so I say buy it if you can.

I hate stopped up ears! I hope it gets better.

What is a teabag dive exactly?

As bad as a teabag dive sounds;)

It is just our first time in the water. We get all the gear on and get to spend about 10 min in the water.

I'm going to try and get a pic of it.

Ick. I hate sore ears. Mine are especially sensitive. Especially when mixed with water.
